I don’t know why you are making such a big deal out of a little cold and a little snow. I watched Mike Bloomberg on TV say he could teach anyone to be a farmer. All they had to do is dig a little hole, drop in a seed and a little water and are done...up comes a corn stalky. He must be right, he said all you need is a little more grey matter to be a successful farmer. Why aren’t you in Florida for the winter yet? If you are short handed I could give you a couple of hours next week. That should be long enough to learn all about farming. the way......who loaned you all those big machines. Wow they cost at least 20 thou each. And you broke the red one with the long armie things. Oh! Do you always work at night with the bright lights? Set your alarm clocks a little earlier and go to work at 8 or 9 am like the rest of us. It’s time you farmers starting putting a full days work like Mike does. If you need any additional advice or have any questions about. Eco farming or maximizing your crop yields, I can help when I get back from vacation in a couple weeks. Best regards. JoeB

I'm curious about the problems and delays that snow and ice cause on the combines during the harvest. At 2:30 your talkin about ice dams at the Feeder House and the fact that the ice will form and block the corn from feeding into the Feeder House. The amount of time that is wasted having to take the combine back to the shop to thaw it out, is crazy! Have the engineers at Deere or any other manufacturer of headers done anything to rectify this? Are there any deice or heating elements that could be applied to or attached to the header to keep those vital parts from collecting ice? From my unqualified seat here, somebody fell asleep at the design meeting. The example of this tech comes from my experience in aviation. Aircraft encounter icing events all the time and to alleviate this they have deice boots which inflate slightly to break up the ice or leading edge of the wings are heated by either engine heat/exhaust. There are also deice fluids that might be useful. I cant help but believe that there is a paralleled use case for this kind of application that would save you time and money. Just a thought! I could be wrong! To Zack and all farmers, thanks for what you do and what you provide. Idaho appreciates ya!

*The continual STRIVING you and all farmers call forth in the face of weather's varying assaults is so very impressive and should be lauded, repeatedly, by all of our nation's peoples. Thank you for the huge effort that arrives from your valiant hearts, day after day, after day, year in and year out. Ooorah! ||| I have read somewhere that (purportedly) the new 5G repeaters have generators that are amplifying 10,000 times higher output than is needed to support the new 5G cells phones AND is actually a hidden and clandestine methodology for producing Weather Change nationally, such as producing tornado in the middle of January ! ! ! [ > > > have you and the organized farmers of America ever considered looking into whether or not what i have read is actually true (sorry i can not find the article now) . . . and if so, how that will/may be used to drive forward bankruptcies so that corporate/globalists can better take control of America's sovereignty by then gaining control of its food production? < < < ]*

I work for a farmer just north of the border, in fact we are right on the border. We farm 5000 acres of canola, wheat, soy beans and corn. I watch your videos and I can totally relate. I have videos of combining in blizzards where I could not see the combines so I would have to keep track of who I emptied last and find him and follow unless his header was plugged with mud. We have 640 acres of corn that we have to combine in spring. We're hoping for a much better 2020. Love your videos although I love red tractors and yellow combines.

Is it common for some of a farmer's fields to be 5 miles apart from each other? I know that doesn't sound that far really, but he's made reference to that in several videos.

You guys are having just to much fun...I know i know.. Break downs ,flat tires , no sleep , pissed off people, cold, running noses, getting stuck, working shot handed, cleaning up the shops, freezing up tractors, and that's just a few ? Thank you farmers for letting us see just a little of what you go through.. Texas

We had it bad, too. It was late planting I think for everybody. Had to wait a few days here and there for snow - got it all in before it got bad, though. Potatoes got a little frost bit, early spring rain was so hard it washed out the herbacides so there was tons of nightshade in the beans. The only thing that went right was the corn. Now there's 2ft plus of snow on the ground... Wyoming....

You have to start putting in some cover crops to take care of the mud. You have nothing growing between the corn rows. You will have better traction driving on plants that take up some of that moisture and help infiltration. Stop all tillage and you won't have those erosion problems.

Micro climate impacts tree growth. National labs is doing. SoIL analysis. Many organisms they are finding that are new. Are seeing plant stock take in 40% less oxen e on and more co2. A change in global warming. Climate change - warmer climate moving north into Canada improving harvest cycle. Curious about your area yield do to climate. We have 4 salmon hatteries also that engineer five species of salmon we co manage with the state of WA. Habitat is is important for trees and salmon.

Small Dairy Farmer 33 years old from Ohio. Glad you spotlighted dairy farms in your podcast. You are right a main issue is mega dairies hiring lower cost immigrant workers and flooding the market with to much milk which is knocking out a lot of good small family dairy farms. America does not have to have immigrant workers to do jobs in America. Pay an American a fair wage and they will work. The price of milk hasn't went up for many years. Look in the grocery store the price of water compared to the price of milk. There is way more value in milk than water but price doesn't reflect that. On sidenote I'm not a fan of potatoes either. Me and my boy love watching your videos keep them coming.

I'm from Brazil, I received a video on WhatsApp from the USA, as machines that were in the field and I spent the night in the fields and no video was shown as machines that were selected overnight with the industrial isolated. Why do you do this so as not to break like cold parts and freeze machine fluids?

It would be interesting to hear about your tillage strategy and to give people an idea of how many passes you make total till/plant/spray/combine, etc. I vaguely remember being on my grandpa’s farm as a kid and I remember stalk chopping, rip, disk/harrow but he also did some no till stuff and seamed to have good luck with it

The problem here in Northern Iowa is shortage of propane. Elevators are out and full of wet corn. Farmers with dryers are at a standstill. A lot of corn is still in the fields and was planted late and is wet. I'm waiting for our local to start taking corn, they been waiting 10 days to get propane and are completely out.
FashionalFlyer 11 oy oldin
Zach, A small tip that we found to help pick up/bring in down corn and reduce head plugging is to put your gathering chains in sync. I see yours are currently offset. I don't think there is an actual "correct"way to have them. But after putting ours in sync we had no more plugs between the snouts. #iowa2019harvestsuckstoo

@david crowe Central lower Michigan. I have been driving an Hour in four directions and 70 percent of fields NOT harvested, corn and bean. (3 inches of snow on ground, consistent under freezing temps.) WHY, crops still in the fields,,,,,, Because of a LOT of RAIN,,,!!! and because the smaller farmers NO longer have their own harvesters, they pay the BIG farms to come and do it. Soooo they are LAST on the list AFTER the Big Farmer does his. This is a BIG MISTAKE. Roller Coaster Weather WILL continue and get WORSE,,,, across the U.S .A and Everyone needs to get ready,,,!!!!!!!!!!!!
